Institutional repositories with the aim of open access are gradually spreading in academia, and more and more research articles and academic books are being archived on the web. In particular, researchers are accessing more and more electronic articles, papers, and books on the web. This paper describes an information service that firstly provides researcher name authority on the web, and secondly gathers the web locations of academic information resources and organizes them for individual researchers (especially researchers working in Japan).
